Any chages to FORMS with SSL?

First off, apologies for the complete newbie question…

I have been asked by a client to add SSL to a site that’s currently under development.
the rationale begind this is that the site will collect email addresses and postal adresses of customers.
This informaton will then be emailed back to the client.

Fair grounds for wanting security.

BUT: What, if anything do I need to change in the site’s programming to ensure that data being posted from the user in forms will be secure?

Or does it all ‘just work’?



Not much would need changing. However, if they truly want to have this data highly-secured you might want to also get a certificate that can do e-mail encryption. As far as I know PHP makes this somewhat easy.
